One of our favourite ways of using lemongrass essential oil is as a spray. It gives an instant fresh, natural lift to any room. Also, if you suffer from nausea, the unpleasant odours that make you feel worse can be dispersed by the simple addition of a few drops of this lemongrass essential oil to your vaporiser or diffuser.
Lemongrass has a natural cleansing property that will help to purify the air you breathe. Its uplifting effects also make it a popular choice in aromatherapy blends for sports massage treatments and massaged into tired, stressed out feet and hands. If you or someone in your family suffers from poor circulation, there is a good chance that it might be due to high systemic levels of stress and anxiety. Combining lemongrass essential oil with palmarosa oil or rosewood oil (both anti-stress oils) will help to combat the effects of stress hormones in such people and support better circulation instead.
